(no subject)

Some of you may remember the game "Lotus Turbo Challenge" for the Sega Genesis (It's a racing game)...it was released sometime in the 1990s. As I recall, the passwords sometimes had subtle, witty connections to the track level descriptions. For example, the second level was a course called "Night," and its password was "Sleepers"; the fifth level was called "Desert" and its password was "Apple Pie." However, some of the other levels had connections to their passwords I have not been able to establish (assuming there are any connections at all). I shall list all the levels and passwords below, and place an asterisk next to the ones whose connection I cannot determine. (No password is required for Level 1, which is "Forest"):

2: Night -- Sleepers
3: Fog -- Herbert*
4: Snow -- Business*
5: Desert -- Apple Pie
6: Interstate -- Standish*
7: Marsh -- Mallow
8: Storm -- Tea Cup

My question is this: Does anyone understand the relationship between the names of levels 3, 4 and 6, and their respective passwords?

Blackbox for Windows.. (sorry to sound like a dumbass)

Okay, so I just got Blackbox for Windows. Perhaps it's because I'm not "1337" enough or whatever, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put wallpaper up instead of the ever-boring black background. I downloaded a style, and that much is clear. The style came with a wallpaper, but I'm still not sure how to get the wallpaper to actually show up. If you understand what I'm talking about, can you pleeeaaase help me? I will be so grateful.

Music related, again.

Anyone else tend to listen to songs over and over and over again? If I find a song I like I put it on infinite repeat, which annoys the hell out of most people, I think. So, I do it when I'm alone. I haven't found anyone else that does this.

Vision Divine

questions for all you power metal fans out there:

Has anyone here heard of Vision Divine? Are they any good? They're supposed to be a side-project of Fabio (vocalist) from Rhapsody and they have some members of Labyrinth too. How are they in comparison to Rhapsody and Luca Turilli?

Also, I'm not very up to date with metal news...I remember reading that Nightwish was breaking up since Tarja wanted to pursue a professional opera career. So, are they still together or has Tarja left and the band broken up?
